Xaphoon Jones : You Need (Clipse, Led Zepplin)

Previously known for producing the works of Chiddy Bang, a hot new hip hop/elctronica crew,  Xaphoon Jones, the young prodigy from Philedelphia, PA, has just released his solo mixtape and it is definitely to be reckoned with. Much resembling the musical style and genious of Girl Talk, Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Vol. 1 still carries its own weight and Xaphoon’s ill sampling and crazy beat formulation is undoubtedly distinct. ‘You Need’ is one of the first tracks on the mixtape and I think it gives a idea of what this kid is all about, business. Xaphoon Jones is definitely an inspiration and his talent seems to be nothing less than promising. Make sure to check it out the mixtape, download available here.
